Poems by the Most Deservedly Admired Mrs. Katherine Philips, The Matchless Orinda


Published November 27, 2009


LibriVox recording of Poems by the Most Deservedly Admired Mrs. Katherine Philips, The Matchless Orinda. Read by Elizabeth Klett

The poet Katherine Philips was called "The Matchless Orinda" in her day and was well known for her works, both personal and political. She was a staunch Royalist (a supporter of Charles I and his son during the English Civil Wars) and wrote poetic defenses of the monarchy. She was also part of a literary coterie, in which she and her friends had "code names." Philips herself was "Orinda," her husband "Antenor," and her friend Anne Owen "Lucasia." She is perhaps best known today for her passionate poems celebrating female friendship. (Summary by Elizabeth Klett)
